SWK 4403H – Women and Social Policy in Canada - Elective

(Approved elective course for Collaborative Program in Women’s Studies)

The goal of the course is to develop a critical analysis of how social policies reflect dominant understanding of women in Canadian society. Current feminist thought on diversity and policy models will inform a discussion of programs that have been put in place to address “women’s issues”. The implications of these critiques for future policy directions in various substantive areas are considered.
